Stanford University provides a comprehensive Continuing Studies Program, staffed by Stanford professors and lecturers and tailored to the adult community. Class sessions, scheduled Monday through Thursday evenings, with a few Saturday courses, are conducted on the Stanford campus.
Fall 2001 class offerings range from "Archaeology and Art of the Celts" taught by Dr. Patrick Hunt, author of several publications in the field and lecturer in humanities, through "Introduction to Modern Physical Cosmology" taught by Kathleen Thompson, a physicist at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center.
Areas of study address issues as old as "The World of Ancient Greek and Roman Poetry" taught by March McCall, Professor of Classics, Dean Emeritus of Stanford Continuing Studies, and as current as "Technologies Behind Today's Websites" by Dima Resesh, IT Architect with IBM Global Services, and "Introduction to Biomedical Ethics" taught by Ernli W.D. Young, co-founder and co-director of the Stanford University Center for Biomedical Ethics.
Registration for the fall quarter opens 8:30 a.m., Aug. 20, and continues through Sept. 18. Many classes have limited enrollment.
